defering Panel updates is both useful and a bit tedious. You have to
fetch the Panel reference, and while you are doing your presumably
time-consuming operation, the entire panel is stuck. I suggest that
Deferring Updates should be a property of an individual object and not
just the entire panel. Wrap your operation with a pair of property nodes to
start and stop deferring and you are all set.
